Emphasis:

  • Bend knees when shooting and shoot at the top of your release, this gives you a better chance of scoring!
  • Hold your follow through on every shot
  • Snap that wrist
  • Put seams all in one direction so that you can get backspin on the basketball
  • Keep your eyes focused on the back of the rim
  • Your arm should make a L-shape and your elbow should rub off of your side, forcing it to point inwards.

Spot Basketball Shooting Drill Pt. 1

Instructions:

  • Pre-select 5 positions preferably inside the 3-point line for you young players
  • Shot 50 shots from the first position
  • Once you took 50 shots, advance to the next spot
  • Stay in your shooting range and if you’re comfortable, attempt 3-pointers
  • Keep count of how many shots you make out of 250 total shots

Note: This basketball shooting drill helps players become consistent spot up jump shooters. Work on keeping your balance and shoulders squared to the rim.

This individual shooting drill definitely helped me become a better spot-up shooter because I had to really focus on the proper shooting mechanics.

I was competitive so I would try to beat my score each time that I performed this drill. This drill can be performed with 1 player, but having 2 players is always good.

Sometimes it was just me and myself in the gym. This basketball shooting drill is for beginners, kids, and advanced players!


Spot Basketball Shooting Drill Pt. 2

Instructions:

  • Shoot anywhere inside the arc
  • Time yourself for 10 minutes
  • Flip the basketball out, catch it off the bounce and shoot
  • Stay in your shooting range and if you’re comfortable, attempt 3-pointers
  • Keep count of how many shots you make in 10 minutes
  • Try to take tons of shots inside the arc
  • Shots at a 45-degree angle, bank those in to the basket

Note: Focus on keeping your balance as you catch the ball off the bounce, square your body to the rim and take the shot.

You should be consistent with your fundamentals, because a poor flip of the basketball may force you to think that you have to take a bad shot.

This basketball shooting drill definitely helped me become a better spot-up shooter and overall player because I had to really focus on the proper shooting mechanics. Each time that I performed this shooting drill, I would focus on my balance, taking more shots than I did the last time I performed this drill.

Get quicker a flipping the ball out, squaring up, getting your balance and taking a good shot. Eventually you will not have a lot of time to shoot. This drill can be performed with 1 player.
